I was on my way driving back and oh hell, forgot to ask the number of my friend, where she just came back from Melbourne and was at Ipoh. Totally forgot about that. Then dropping by at this Ipoh town where every one been talking about the Ipoh Nga Choi Kai at Restaurant Onn Kee. Came here for the 3rd time but the other stall did not open so try up this stall. No Choice. Either this or that. So it is this.

ippoh (1)

onn kee (1)

Trying out at restaurant Ong Kee. It was around 6pm and the tables was nearly fully occupied. This shows how good the business are but of course cannot compare with Murni @ SS 2 or Steven’s Corner @ OUG / Jln Genting Klang. They are crazee. Occupied the whole street.

onn kee (3)

 Not only that. They are quite well known for their chicken feet too.

ippoh (2)

As some of them order chicken skin with some spare part like chicken gizzard, none of the people on my table eat it besides me. Smooth chicken skin with soy sauce just make it simple and nice to chew.

ippoh (3)

To be in this town and eat chicken rice, their fatty juicy tauge (bean sprout) is not to be miss, and why is their tauge is thick and juicy. Well, I was being told by my friend that they grow in natural mineral water flowing from moutain. That is why the tauge here is fat, juicy and crunchy.

ippoh (4)

One of my favourite in this stall is their pork ball and fish ball. Something nice to chew and dip onto their chicken meat sauce.

ippoh (5)

Find that Onn Kee ‘Ngah Choi Kai’ a.k.a ‘Tauge Ayam’ taste much better than Lou Wong. Simply because of the method that they cook it differently. On my personal opinion i think that the chicken texture here is soft tender and juicy and of course what stood out is their sesame and soy sauce base make them more outstanding. This is because I had lunch on Lou Wong had dinner here. That is how I manage to taste on the difference even though I came here many times.

ippoh (6)

This is the Koay Teow Soup’ that to be eat with the dish. It is either this or rice. Usually all the people that eat here will take Koay Teow but honestly, after you finishing the whole bowl, a little tip. Prepare a bottle of mineral water after that. You will be very thristy with their secret weapon in there. You really need it. That is why with their secret weapon the food will definitely taste nice no matter what. (This was my tip on 2009) 😀

Looking at the way how I blog last time its funny~ kekekeke

This new edit post is a blend of my 2009 writing style and 2012. Spot the difference~ I find that overall, I like Onn Kee more also just realize that I have not blog about Lou Wong before.

It has been a long long time since I last came back here and hunt for Chuan Chiew Bak Kut Teh in this area. Used to be one of my hang out spots when I was studying, till I have a few disappointed bak kut teh hunting around my housing area till have to come back here for a decent one.

bkt ss14 (1)

SS14 is already quite well know with a street filled with Bak Kut Teh with many offerings. Every shop have their very own customer base and down till which stall you prefer. As too many years back and little did I remember which one was the best and start off with 2nd outlet on the street which is Chuan Chiew.

bkt ss14 (2)

Early dinner it is as the uncle already busy preparing all his ingredient and cutting it off for waiting customer.

bkt ss14 (3)

To dine Bak Kut Teh of course the ambiance must be in Kopitiam Style ..

bkt ss14 (4)

2 types of soup base, one which is all the ingredient being boil along and another one is to mix it around.

bkt ss14 (5)

After mixture or order, and putting it into claypot, its left on this stove to boil till pippin hot.

bkt ss14 (6)

I quite like the Dry Bak Kut Teh here as its cook along with dry shrimp, taste of squid that make the slight saltiness and thick soy sauce to make it thick, along with chili padi to make it slightly spicy. Just perfect.

bkt ss14 (7)

My pippin hot claypot bak kut teh ..

bkt ss14 (8)

I have a mixture of meat, variety of parts, meat is not too tough yet cook till soft as i prefer. The sad part is always remember to order your needle mushroom to be separated if not the taste of it will over power the taste of the soup. As I order another portion without it. Soup base here is mild not so herbal which most of the locals prefer. Soup definitely can be refillable. I prefer mine to be strong in herbal taste but this is good enough to satisfy.

bkt ss14 (9)

Overall came up to RM61.20 for soup with portion of 4 and dry bak kut teh with 2 portion and 3 of us just whack it.

Deserts Lovers, which brand do you prefer since we have Taiwan fever deserts booming in our country at the moment, from drinks (bubble tea) to ice desert series with the brand like Chatime, Gong Cha, Snowflakes and now UFO which in the same area had another brand of Taiwanese desert that I did not even bother to write on.

[ No longer in Operation ]

UFO (1)I

I have heard good feedback from my friend regarding on UFO another Taiwanese Deserts as they rate this second best after Snowflakes (click here). YES. . . UFO is not actually the alien UFO is just a taiwanese desert shop with the catchy name. Since its nearby my work area, I gather my colleague to have dinner then come by for deserts after that.

UFO (2)

UFO Taiwanese desert is located in the heart of SS2 with its super big billboard that is hard to miss, which is the same row of Police Station.

UFO (3)

Of course we are here to try on their ice series .. .

UFO (4)

I guess this is how the name par on it, with UFO calling number. It will vibrate when your order is ready.

UFO (5)

always wanted to start order with Soya series but it was out of stock so go for their classic range, Grass Jelly series. . . .

UFO (6)

Grass Jelly with 3 toppings (mini taro balls, red bean, pearl)

UFO (7)

UFO (8)

Ai Yu Jelly with glutinous balls

UFO (9)

Matcha Special @ RM 6

Overall in this outlet, Grass Jelly certainly have its taste which is pretty strong and did not dissapoint us at all and the best series I would recommend is their Matcha or Green Tea Ice Series that have strong taste of green tea and pair very well with other ingredient and all of us agree that its one of the best to look for in this shop.

Price starting from RM4.50 (1topping) to RM6.00 (3toppings) 

If you wanted to order their bubble tea, just save your money and order the ice series. Pretty disappointing.

Now Durian Season is back which is usually starts from June till August which is about 3 months and the most peak is half way through where lots of durian’s in different flavours are able to get especially the good qualities. . In South East Asia, Durian is known as the King of Fruits with its large size, unique smell also cover with thorns on its shell that a Durian can easily weight from 1kg to 7kg’s depending on types of it. Durian Buffet at SS 2

Durian is a love-hate relationship either you love it alot or you just hate it, as I am a durian lover of course I love it alot and looking forward for this once a year affair, some they just hate it so much as unable to bear the smell which is too strong for them to bear and I even have friends that smells it, they feel like puking.  As is only available in Asian’s countries especially in Malaysia and some of its neighboring countries of course I love this fruit alot.

ss2 durians (1)

The season already started bout 6-7 weeks ago and now reaching its peak as one of the famous spot to get Durian Buffet is located in the heart of SS2 – directly behind BHP petrol station you will get to hunt for at least 5-6 stalls. According to my friend, this stall was the only stall that operate in the area few years ago as with firsts of its kind to offer buffet style and then it had gain popularity among local crowd, more stalls come in to seize the opportunity. So we decided to go to its original stall which is the most crowded known as Durians SS2

ss2 durians (2)

For local type of durians, we are pampered with a lot of choices in types of flavours, durian meat texture, smooth, sticky, yellow colour meat, white colour, cream colour also with famous in the market now is Raja Kunyit or known as Musang King, Udang Merah and many more.

ss2 durians (3)

This would be my first time coming here to hunt for the buffet style as my brother told me previously that he had was a month ago, the buffet cost him RM25 but he had quite a satisfying one, as last night I went the price had went down abit with 2 choices to choose from:

RM 9 / RM 15 as what is the difference is that the quality of durian, of course we went after the RM15 which is not much different.

ss2 durians (4)

Even they have a chart for you to choose that filled with description or what kind of texture and flavour you are expecting . .

ss2 durians (5)

This is called D13 with yellowish solid skin, once bit it, its a bit sticky and very nice in aroma that burst in your mouth, that turn out the seed is pretty small and its sweet in taste.

ss2 durians (6)

This is another type of durian which I asked the guy and comes out a type of it which I havent heard before. .

Well, I would say for RM15 buffet we paid and with the quality we got, me and my friends are very satisfied with its quality, texture of the durian meat and the taste. If ask me is it worth, I would say super worth and we are planning to go again. – highly recommended. .

Once thing I was told by random durian seller that next year they going to increase in price as China will be importing our durians. . 🙁

so who is up for next round? Part 2 (click here)

PRICE:
RM 9 normal durians – guess its durian Kampung??
RM 15 better grades durians..
RM 20 premium grades durians. . (we have this for this round)

Weekdays all 3
Weekend only available RM 15/ RM 20 ONLY. .

I used to stay in Taman Paramount when I first came down to KL which is at my aunts place, I constantly dine at those 2 coffee shop for its cheap food and economy rice and I totally never knew there is one hidden Char Siew stall right behind at it which never mention by my aunt also. Ah Khai famous Char Siew Chicken Rice was not until one of my colleague went to ‘ta pau’ char siew for boss and client to eat for lunch, then she let us try out the char siew and its heavenly good. From there, we were talking about it how good it was and must go to the stall to eat.

**UPDATE: Ah Khai Char Siew NO LONGER OPERATE at SIMONS Delight as now had move a few shops up to RESTAURANT MEI YAN. . . .starting May 2011

NED_6425_resize

ah kai

It was not until last week, we decided to hunt it down for this marvelous ‘Char Siew’ that located in Section 17 hidden inside Restaurant Simon’s Delights. We manage to reach there early as the time of operating business is from 11am-1pm. . . I just cannot imagine people doing business for just 3 hours a day. It must have been brisk business.

ah kai (2)

Seeing those ‘Char Siew’ hanging there is like waving at us to order it desperately making us place our order we a portion of char siew for 3 pax a plate for 3 plates.

ah kai (3)

One of the funny thing that I ask the owner, ‘Are you Local’ cuz while I was eating there and I kept figuring, is he local or not to do such a great char siew. . and his answer Yes… I am local just that I am not as white ask you guys that work in the office, since young I got burn infront of the stove by helping parents out that’s how I turn dark or ah bu neh neh. . . I can say, a very friendly guy that talk a lot of nonsense.

ah kai (5)

‘Roast Chicken’ is quite normal, nothing much to brag about. . .

ah kai (4)

The first place of ‘Char Siew is mix with Roast Pork’ that actually we wanted to try it out too, suprisingly it turn out to be good too, with the skin roasted well till it is crispy yet do not broke our teeth, with perfect thin layer of fats in between the lean meat and dip with the chili sauce is just perfect.

After I took picture of it, this plate of combo was gone in seconds . .  till all 3 plates that got serve just gone. .  We order another round of purely char siew only.

ah kai (6)

Pure ‘Char Siew’ was one of the best char siew I have ever come accross, with it well roast char siew till it was well quoted by caramelised with the burn end layer. . You can either chose 70% fats and 30% meat as we go ahead with equal fats and meat that spread out very well, till the bite in our mouth it melts as the meat is so soft and tender till it break into slices and the fats melts along with it. . . Every piece of it, is burst with flavor and that is how we ended up ordering another two more plates purely on char siew. If you love fats like my friend, go for the heavy weight more fats less meat..you will definately enjoy it!

At the end of the meal, the coffee shop were sardin pack with people ordering char siew and tapau, we even order a few take away back to office for tea time. Surely I am going back for more, we consider it quite cheap, with so many order and it is not more than RM10. Worth Recommending this place if you are a char siew lover~

Do go early to avoid dissapointment . . .

A recommended Char Siew place~

Got invited by Lucia to join dinner with her friends at SS 2. Did not know this place exist even used to stay at my aunts place nearby. I was so surprise with the crowd in this restaurant. So crowded and so pack of people. It is like, ‘Welcome, Only RM 15p/pax eat all you can’ that kind of crowd. I was already late 30 mins for the dinner and hell!!! to find a parking spot in the area is not easy. After round and round 2 rounds then round back in front of the restaurant and so ngam nice nice got 1 parking spot can fit in my small car. Lucky me~

This is Lucia and Malcom her friend which is always standby anytime and any where, with your camera ready to snap, they are ready instantly even they are still chatting. Lol. After snapping they are back to their conversation~ This is downstairs + outside of the restaurant.
We were gladly sitting upstairs with air conditioning.

Started of with ‘Salmon Lou Sang’. The salmon is so so, not that fresh yet not that hard to eat. With the sauce and everything pour in, it taste good, not too sweet for the sauce and salty and with some of the oil and spices, just ngam ngam. Nice lou sang. Did not put the after effect of the lou sang as it was too messy. Censored~

This dish don know called what as the order are all done by Malcom. When I was there, the food was like served instantly. Not much taste on this veggie. Can’t really taste the garlic also but the veggie is nicely fried.
This is the veggie with long beans fried with eggplant, mince meet and some tiny shrimps. It taste a bit spicy, but goes well along with the taste of sambal and the petai. The taste nicely covered the petai smell not that strong on it.
This is the Chicken in don know what, one of the famous dish in the restaurant as I did observe alot people ordered it. Was nicely cook, abit of sweet watermelon taste, the chicken is nicely cook and the mean is soft like steam and fried chicken.

This is their signature Taufu. It is very soft and the mince meet is a bit salty. Perfectly goes along with the taufu as it is nicely fried.

I must say that, this is the best dish of all night. The fish is nicely steam out, the meat is so soft and the fish is very fresh goes along very well with the gravy similar to soy sauce. Do not know what type of fish is this but it is very nice. Should try it out.

This is the ‘Pai Kuatcuz extra order it when i was there. The pork is very soft in it and the gravy is a bit sweet and sour.

This is the receipt for the whole course meal. The receipt comes in a total of RM198 shared among 8 people. The price is so so for the food they provide. The service is good as there are alot of worker standing by nearby. The dish name is in Chinese totally do not know how to read it. The whole experience was nice to meet you guys~
